Innovation is not easy. It involves experimentation, taking risks and investing resources in projects that may not deliver the outcomes you want. Optimizely takes a data driven approach to testing multiple scenarios so you can make better decisions about what's best for your business. I spoke with their new managing director for ANZ, Dan Ross, about their Australian launch and the opening of Australian offices in Melbourne and Sydney and how decision making is not about hippos.
Google's been making strides toward the creepy over the past few weeks. Last week the company figured out how to tie real-world credit card transactions to its own advertising network to further its ad platform effectiveness. This week, Google has started experimenting on some user's search pages: They will take your personal data and display it next to some traditional search data with the hopes that you'll eventually look for everything through their classic search box.
I just migrated my photos off of Flickr. Yes, it's 2017, and I was still using Flickr. Why? Because I'd been using it since 2005, it's free, and the mobile app is… fine. But now that it seems like Flickr is joining the likes of AOL and Earthlink in the internet graveyard, it's clearly time to leave. Why did it take this long for me to leave to begin with?
Have you ever accidentally deleted a file, a folder or formatted an entire partition? It happens to the best of us, but all hope is not lost. There are a whole lot of free data recovery and undelete utilities available online, though it can be just as hard to tell which ones will actually work (and won't turn out to contain malware).

If you're concerned about your privacy when browsing the internet, a virtual private network (VPN) is the best way to tell any snoopers to shove off. There's a problem though. VPNs are notoriously shady, are more complicated than they look, they're unregulated, and can be more of a security risk than they're worth if you don't set them up correctly.
The world can be a dangerous place, especially for careless travellers. Though the US State Department focuses on alerting American tourists of the risks, its warnings can also provide Australians with additional information when deciding upon a holiday destination. However, those warnings don't always paint a clear picture. Turns out, the countries issued the most travel warnings aren't always the most dangerous.
If you're on a cheap mobile phone plan, there's a good chance your monthly data allowance is woefully inadequate. This can lead to huge bills at the end of the month if you don't keep close tabs on your usage.
Instead of switching off your mobile data completely (or downgrading to a basic phone), try following these simple data-stretching tips. With plenty of discipline and a bit of know-how you can make even the flimsiest of data plans go the distance.
Vizio recently got in trouble for collecting data on TV customers who opted out. This brings up an interesting question: Can my TV collect and share my data? Yep, the option is hidden in the settings of most smart TVs as "viewing information" or "internet-based advertising". If you don't want to be tracked, opt out.
Data loss at the hands of an untimely computer crash is a very real possibility for anyone. That’s why it pays to have a data recovery system watching your back -- like Disk Drill PRO 2.
